God always keeps His Word. He does everything He says He'll do. Those conforming to His Kingdom are learning to keep our Word. We shouldn't have to make promises because we ought to be known as those who do what we say we'll do. With men, this is impossible. But with God, all things are possible. He has removed our sin. He has purchased us for Himself and forgiven us and has promised us an unending life in His presence, though we deserve none of these things. May we be those who trust Him. He has proven that He is faithful and true. Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, July 7, 2019.

The Gospel According to Moses
Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 26 views • 47:21
If salvation is by grace, as followers of Christ is there any reason to study the Law? Specifically, the book of Deuteronomy? When was the last time you even read it, let alone studied it? How many Christians have adopted the notion, "law bad, grace good?" Could it be that we the members of the church of Jesus Christ need a little reorientation of our spiritual map? For after all, Paul's words declaring all Scripture is given by inspiration of God is applicable to Deuteronomy as well--just as inspired and authoritative as is Romans or John. Come with the Grace United crew as we discover how to re-orient our spiritual map, preparing to travel down the "Deuteronomy Road."
The King & The Thief: Jesus vs. Judas
Theme: The moment Judas turned against Jesus. The way that you get to a betraying heart is when you believe the lie of the leaven. Instead, faith looks thru the leaven and sees there is a creator that is sitting right next to me as my redeemer. He has the world in His hands, and He wants my heart.
